members of the homeland security committee say this looks like the mark of al qaeda. we have brand-new details in the f.b.i.'s investigation. first let's go downtown in boston. >> the sun is just beginning to rise over the city of boston, a much different city, a quiet city this morning, almost eerie to see boylston street behind me and this morning it still looks like a marathon happened here yesterday. streets are still a mess, papers are everywhere. that area is in lockdown. the business district not reopening today. that remains a crime scene as a terrorist investigation continues right now here on the streets of boston. this event happened just a little bit before 3:00 yesterday afternoon. that's when really the height of the marathon, the elite runners had long since finished about two hours earlier. so the people that were crossing the finish line were many of them charity runners, were here to raise money for leukemia, for the liver foundation, for all the various things that people raise money for in the course of the 26 miles, plus they're running. as they were crossing t
of collaboration with al qaeda, al qaeda affiliates. this is a continuing concern. again, we're not saying that it was a foreign terrorist group. but this is the backdrop, again, which the fbi is working on this situation right now. john? >> all right. barbara starr at the pentagon. thank you. >>> coming up, there is still so many questions this morning in the aftermath of yesterday's attack here at the boston marathon. we will continue to bring you the latest information as it comes in. you are watching a special edition of "early start." stay with us. the one thing that 99 percent of investors can expect to find in their portfolio, is unexpected risk. bny mellon has the vision and experience to help. we look at the full picture... to uncover risk, find opportunities, and create a plan that's best suited for you. bny mellon. before i do any projects on on my at angie's list, you'll find reviews written by people just like you. i love my contractor, and i am so thankful to angie's list for bringing us together. angie's list -- reviews you can trust. olay ultra moisture body wash can
as they matured, this is where it will come from. al qaeda has no capability right now to mount the sophisticated attacks. we have disrupted al qaeda central but it is the self-motivated radicals that are the new danger. >> bill: let's go to shepard smith in watertown, massachusetts. what say you? >> >> bill, a quick 10 minute drive over here from downtown boston on a night where the streets are still empty across. we were listening as you were to fox 25 here in boston as the word came down that, in fact, is he in custody and has been taken away from that scene. i think there are a lot of things we have yet to learn, bill. we don't know about the rest of that facility there. we don't know about these explosions that happened. we haven't yet heard from police on other matters regarding the possibility of these other three who were taken into custody tonight. two men and a woman for questioning. whether that is related or not remains to be seen. i'm turning around because we are waiting to see where the suspect ends up and a long night ahead. of course, authorities have said they are sending that r

by al qaeda, but it's also been advertised in domestic extremist web sites. what is important the components could potentially be traced back to reports of a circuit board being included. something like that might be relatively distinctive and that could be a key piece for the fbi to trace back. where that came from, how it was purchased and how ultimately it got in that bomb. you combine that with video and photos we are talking about and that is where you see this start. you hope to break wider open. >> guys, the patriots day on monday started with the red sox game at 11:00 in the morning. they came back and they won in walkoff fashion. obviously, things turned terrible from there. the red sox were back on the field in cleveland last night. a moment of silence at progressive field there before the indians hosted the red sox. it was the sox first game since the marathon attacks. the game mike napoli hit a three-run double that helped the red sox win the game and hanging in the dugout a jersey with the word "boston strong." and number 617 for the zip code where the bombing too
has a monopoly from that technology, it does happen that al qaeda and yemen has very recently been urging people to build their own homemade bombs using, guess what, pressure cookers titled under "how to build a bomb in the kitchen of your mom." so certain thrly there are a lo questions out there. these facts look suspicious. >> mark, you're the expert on extremist right-wing groups. do you agree with evan, you don't know or you don't think so? >> well, i agree with evan. i think he's right on. when you look at the target, you know, what do those people at the boston marathon really have in common? you know, they are not -- they don't represent the government, they don't represent the irs. it was tax day, of course, on monday. they are not a particular minority group. they are not black people, brown people, muslims, latinos, so on. it seemed to me that the targets had in common is that they were americans. i think evan's right. we don't know where this came from but it does seem difficult to understand the targeting and if you look at the kinds of actions that radical right wing g
to the shrapnel spray. the i.e.d.s have been popular with terrorists. al qaeda published a how-to recipe in an on-line magazine. several of the bombs were used in the 2006 attack on trains in mumbai india. in 2004 and 2010, the department of homeland security warned law enforcement that pressure cooker bombs could present a threat in the u.s. in the failed time square attack in may 2010, a pressure cooker was found amid the bomb component in the back of the suspect's s.u.v. but the use of pressure cooker bombs does not necessarily point to an international terror connection. the f.b.i. still can't rule out a domestic cell or lone wolf. and at the moment investigators have no solid leads on who might be responsible. the f.b.i. is studying surveillance videos and photos hoping to spot the bomber in the crowd. and lead agent rick deslauriers is appealing for the public's help. >> we are asking anyone who may have heard someone speak about the marathon or the date of april 15 in anyway that indicated that he or she may target the event to call us. someone knows who did this. >> reporter: investigator
there are recipes, bomb making recipes in "inspire" magazi magazine, an al qaeda magazine, but also the anarchist group, which is a domestic group. when we heard the pressure cooker bomb, we heard that wouldn't help investigators come to a conclusion, who was behind this and why. but, again, the pieces may lead them to the individuals so they can answer that question. >> tom, i want to get a little bit into the psychology of a person who would do this no claim of responsibility as we know of, and the bomb made to cause the most damage possible. can you take us inside the mind of someone who would do this? >> well, possibly. you know, in a situation like this, you have the difficulty of the investigation is that this has the hallmarks of an international terrorist bombing. it has the hallmarks of domestic terrorist bombings and hallmarks of neither one. you don't have a group like al qaeda or taliban claiming credit like you might. you don't have a suicide bomber, someone martyring themselves in the process. the bomber still alive and out there as we speak. that creates difficulty. secondly, in th
possibly of a foreign terrorist that has carried out attacks in war zones or in potential al qaeda attacks? does it match the signature of a home grown terrorist? these are the kinds of things they're starting to look at. we know that from the expertise that they've all assembled. it may take some time but this is what they're going to focus on at least in the coming days. john? >> reporter: you know, it sounds cliche, barbara, but no detail is too small because you don't know where that break might come from. we should also say there's news from pakistan this morning with the taliban. what's the taliban saying about this right now? >> exactly right. you know, this is the other thing we're going to going to look at. the pakistani taliban is claiming they didn't do t. let me read you a brief part of the statement that they put out. quote, wherever we find americans we will kill them, but we don't have any connection with the boston explosions. that coming from the ttp, the so-called pakistani taliban. what's so interesting about this is this group claims responsibility for the failed 2010 f
the place. you don't have to look very hard to find it. the al-qaeda magazine inspire has the recipe, but a lot of other places do, too. >> we should be clear, it does not narrow down the universe of people that could do this. >> no, but on the other hand, the fact that the explosive was gunpowder, that these pieces were fairly big, means that investigators will have a lot to go on. they've all been sent to the fbi crime lab in quantico. what's happening right now, they know what brand pressure cooker there is. now, they're trying to find out where do you buy these, what, truly, what part of the country sells them. let's go now and find out who sold them in the last couple of months. this is the sort of thing which the fbi excels. sheer force of numbers. chasing down all these leads. they'll find out and i know this from past investigations. i'm not making this up. they will see if there's electrical tape, what kind was it. when was it made? can we find a lot number and in all these things, they'll be looking for fingerprints just in case the bomb maker got sloppy. >> thank you. char
to make ied's. it may have been stuffed in a bag with black nylon. one al qaeda affiliate has specifically mentioned pressure cookers. the homeland security warned about the devices after one was used in the attempted times square bombing. the fragments themselves the doctors have been removing from victims. >> that will be the job to find out where the nails came from were they purchased at lowes or home depot or a small town close to the scene. if they were when they were purchased. is it possible to determine who purchased the nails and when they did. >> in that vein nain they are painstakingly to reconstruct the bombs not just how they were made but who made have made them. >> doug luzader we just don't know who yet. >>> all mail delivery to the u.s. senate has been stopped this after a letter containing the potentially deadly poison ri ricin was sent to a u.s. senator. peter doocy is outside of the senate mail facility. good morning, peter. >> good morning patti ann. the suspect levtter never made t to roger whittaker's office. the building behind me tested positive for ricin poison.
connection or link to al qaeda had been found in this attack, at least not yet. they have not named any suspect yet, the federal government, and no one has claimed responsibility. but the man hunt is on one assumes one of the most intense in our country's history. the news of the attack sent a shock wave through wall street yesterday. the dow suffered its biggest drop of the year. today the markets bounced back. optimism about housing and a pickup in hiring are credited for the surge. the traders began the day with a moment of silence for the victims in boston just before the opening bell. we'll have more on the marathon bombings in just a moment, but first we want to bring you some of today's other headlines. thousands of american airlines passengers are stuck at their gates thanks to a computer outage. the airline grounded flights across the country until 5:00 p.m. eastern while the system is being repaired. american airlines said the ground stop did not impact arrivals. passengers who want to change their reservations will not be charged the airline says. with very little fanfare, la
in "inspire" magazine several years ago, the magazine of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. that's the extent of what i know about pressure cooker bombs. that's the one where they were telling americans to how to make bombs against their own country and the magazine did call for attacks on iconic athletic events. >> i've checked with the official sources i have, we don't know what it is, who, whether a single suspect or a group, foreign or domestic, intelligence communities now, going back over any information to see whether any incoming in the last weeks or months, even had any hints of this. and tasking bureaus around the world. since we don't know that. ha do you think we need to do in terms of homeland security at these events, you've got baseball games, you've got all sorts of other athletic events coming up today, tomorrow, around the country. >> well, andrea, obviously there's always certain ways that security can be stepped up at an event. the fact is that if someone is a terrorist, they can construct a bomb and put it together. if they can carry it that far, chances are they're going
is al qaeda 101, investigators are baffled. no individual or group has taken responsibility. >> the person who did this is someone's friend, neighbor, co-worker or relative. someone knows who did this. >> reporter: so the fbi heavily relying on the public. they say more than 2,000 tips have already come in. and they are following up on each and every one of them. john, and diana. >> marci, 24 hours ago we were talking about a potential suspect. investigators at a suburban boston apartment. any update on that? >> we were told investigators were questioning a 20-year-old student. investigators aren't giving us any information about that. a source tells abc news it appears the tips that led investigators to this 20-year-old and to this apartment didn't pan out. so at this point it appears he is not considered a person of interest. but investigators say they are not ruling anything out at this point. >> marci, the pressure cooker bombs, what are you hearing from intelligence and how -- what's the latest on these? >> well this is something that homeland security sent a warning ou
the hallmark or clues that we normally associate with al qaeda attacks. >> it doesn't. no one is claiming responsibility. they weren't enormous bombs. but they are both like bombings in iraq and in afghanistan. those smaller bombs, and plus the 1 seconds apart. the two bombs, that's really a hallmark of somebody who knows what they're doing and they want to elicit maximum terror. i mean, think about the word "terror," the people here, innocents in their shorts and t-shirts watching a wonderful event, and right now, we sit here. when i flew in last night, george, i was looking over the city and i thought, somewhere in that city is someone who just did a horrible, horrible thing. >> and, martha, for you coming in last night, i was coming home while you reported from boston for many years, you know what this marathon, what this day, patriots day means to this city of boston. >> it is just the most wonderful coming together in this city. you know, this is a big city, but it really is a small town and i am already hearing terrible stories of people who have a friend of a friend who lost a leg.
